Describing his Bluesman life: ” On Saturday, somebody like me or Robert Johnson would go into one of these little towns, play for nickels and dimes. And sometimes, you know, you could be playin’ and have such a big crowd that it would block the whole street. Then the police would come around, and then I’d go to another town and where I could play at. “

AN INSPIRATION TO THE ROLLING STONES, TO ERIC CLAPTON ET AL .. ONE OF THE TOP FIFTY GUITARISTS IN THE WORLD… Howlin’ Wolf’s LEAD guitarist. Hubert is in the BLUES HALL OF FAME. WHEN HE DIED, THE ROLLING STONES PAID FOR HIS FUNERAL WHILE ERIC CLAPTON PUT ON A BENEFIT SHOW WITH THE BEST OF THE BEST MUSICIANS TO HONOR THIS MAN. I MET HIM IN HIS ‘DRESSING ROOM’ BEFORE A SHOW .. HE KNEW A COUSIN OF MINE .. COULDN’T BE HAPPIER TO MEET ME AS I WAS BLOWN AWAY MEETING MY IDOL. WE CHATTED / LAUGHED .. ONLY HE, I AND HIS MANAGER WERE THERE … WHAT A TERRIBLE LOSS.
